agree w/ guy below: surprised by anyone who'd call this mediocre, average or otherwise. this gig is kicked right into high gear w the alabama>johnny b goode... perhaps some are put off by jerry struggling w/ vocals on occasion. regardless, very enjoyable show with, as someone else says, the band performing at peak capacity in this era. thx to all for making this available.

I'm surprised by the lackluster reviews. IMO, this is arguably the best show of the tour. I always like when Truckin' appears pre-drums, and there's a nice, sweet jam out of He's Gone into drums. Space gets pretty intense, and The Other One totally shreds. It's about as good as it gets for the era.
Jerry's solos in Stella Blue and Dear Mr. Fantasy are stratopheric. Great versions of both songs.

If you get confused, listen to the music play.

Sick Jerry, (not in a good way.)
Weird set list, but fun to hear. This show is actually not that bad if you can overlook all the Jerry problems. Obviously vocals and some not so bright guitar in spots. Too much noodling and not enough focus.
Not to say this show has no heart. By the end they seem frustrated and full of energy, but too little, too late. On the bright side, if you like Brent and Bobby this is a good show. Brent is really starting to stick himself out there, and I like it!
Three and a half to four stars for the effort and the great recording. Thanks again to the tapers and Charlie Miller.
